WWE Referee Charles Robinson nearly lost his finger yesterday when he got it cut and bad. Worst part was he was in the U.S and overseas where the country does not allow Women to attend the WWE show.
The following is an article from TMZ.com:
No, a WWE ref did not get caught stealing from a market in Saudi Arabia … but he did come dangerously close to losing a thumb in a super gnarly accident.
Charles Robinson was preparing the ring with other crew members before their show Friday in the Middle East … and the referee says he tried to carelessly rush through the job — but instead, sliced his finger.
Robinson says it was so bad he almost lost his thumb … but WWE doc Chris Amann managed to quickly patch him up with 6 stitches.
Beats getting hit with the Razor’s edge (wrestling joke).
Robinson also tweeted the following today:
6 stitches today after working on the ring. Such a goof I am. pic.twitter.com/R2vHv2ZfIW

That is a serious cut, I don’t think I have ever heard of a referee being injured or cut while on the job.
